, the ballot initiative process in california is so famous. i do want to say that california had a couple of controversial ones here, 1, they did not vote down the death penalty, still allowed in california. 2, it looks like they passed a tax measure to make california the most taxed state in the union. so that's controversial here in california. a bit of a surprise, considering the economy here in the golden state isn't the best. but you mention the process, the ballot process across the country. yes, definitely, same-sex marriage and marijuana both faired very well at the ballot box. maine passed it, as well as maryland and washington, all passing referendums, allowing for same-sex marriage. they legalized it again in maine, maryland and washington, and an amendment to vote against it in minnesota is too close to call at this hour. meantime, to the medical marijuana front, we know that two big states here that passed the medical marijuana were -- lost you here, montana. and in oregon, it's failing. the interesting vote with marijuana was the fact that colorado and washington allowed it
into the state because they work in private sector. they made that ratio. for example, in california, that ratio is bigger. if you own a software company that employs 100 people, you are supporting 139 people in the state on that other list that work for the government or are welfare recipients or pensioners. the other factor they looked at was credit worthiness. they took a statement, what is their debt load for paying for all of this. what is the business climate like. how many businesses are leaving the state because of regulation. home values. they also looked at the unemployment rate. that's the credit worthiness. the death spiral states had a ratio of takers to makers greater than one. so 100 people supporting 139 others or they were in the bottom half of credit worthiness. there were 11 states that came out with bad factors on both sides. surprisingly. new mexico was at the bottom of the list. they had 153 takers per 100 workers. mississippi, california, alabama maine, new york, south carolina, kentucky, illinois, hawaii, and ohio were states that were on this death spiral list. texas did
democratic circles, nancy pelosi has not given a hint about what is next. she has returned to california. sources close say not to expect any announcement before next week. democrats have a caucus meeting for wednesday." next is ron from taxes on the line for independent. caller: i am from kentucky. when these elected officials get elected to office, they sign a contract to the american people. they should not ever put their name on a contract to any certain group. they sign a pledge to work for all of the people, not just certain ones. i also think when the tea party got there thing go in, they do not want to come together in any kind of compromises. i just think it should be borne of a moderate thinking in congress to work towards the middle. i do not like the extremes either way. host: did the election change that attitude? do you think there will be compromise, and not the extremism on either end? caller: i hope so. from what i hear from mitch mcconnell, i do not like. i am a kentucky citizen. it is about time for him to retire. i think mr. john boehner wants to work out a deal. i re
of southern california, he was still in southern california. and he had just finished his phd before i arrived and was teaching in southern california. i gave a lecture there to the middle east community on campus. and my recollection is meeting a doctor morsi who had graduated from usc. i have a hunch that probably was him. but beyond that i have not encountered him personally. he was not a personality on the egyptian scene. was a very key player in the muslim brotherhood, but he was not even the first candidate for the presidency. he was a pull back position when the first candidate was disqualified. so, he is not as well known, but you certainly fluent in english and nose america well. and i suppose that when he and hillary clinton had the conversation or when he and president obama have a phone conversation, did absolutely no problem communicating. host: right-wing radical says the villa a tweet, who is the reigning missiles on israel all year? in another a tweet -- has obama is drawn or help or hurt the united states in the region? guest: 0 it has heard. part of the thing about the ground
of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winter in florida. -- the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we plan 4, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same% of the electorate as in 2008. we got if you got% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, boating rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battle ground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino v
? really good classical halls. i do not know why that is. a small theater that was built in california. albert hall is not bad. carnegie hall is not bad. seriously, they're not bad for rock. and it is nice to have a good, acoustic place. we tend to play in places that were built for sport originally. i have wanted someone to build a venue specifically for loud rock music and pop music and where you get a section of volume and a section of excitement without having to pump up with these huge systems to fill places that were billed for sports, ice hockey, and so on. there is not one, no one has felt the venue for our kind of music. >> my favorite place is the theater in nashville, which i had the privilege of playing three years ago. i been asked what is your favorite kid, and i could never answered it. the ryman. i played there that night. there is something about that place, the sound. it was an old church, so it was designed for the sound from the stage. the spirits that live there on the stage with those that play there and past history. that was the best night i ever had in any hall
society organizations which also features the involvement of the university of california san diego. working with the local communities to rethink and refrain the perceptions and understanding of neighborhood security so there are a lot of bottom-up approach is in changing the securities sector. in addition to the high level of policies that we have been discussing such as the initiatives for the police. >> okay. let's take this as our final question and then one more large question to pose to the panel before we break. >> my name is jason, an independent researcher and consultant on issues around policing and the conflict. my question is aimed primarily at bob and i will tweak it for to tunisia. i'm glad he mentioned his paper. it highlighted the problems and the challenges in libya conducting a light footprint and not the kosovo or afghanistan model with hundreds of thousands of people on the ground. and what sort of pushed the democratization and the ssr forward. so i guess the question for bob is what are the considerations to be engaged the conflict, post conflict ssr. what can
, a little california adventure, to mar run county, california, after being in manhattan or brooklyn for 21, 22 years. >> host: why'd you move out there? >> guest: we wanted to try something different. our kids were at a nice age where they were out of diapers, but today didn't yet have girlfriends -- [laughter] and we have three boys. and we have this nice thing where we can kind of live anywhere because we have a lot of flexibility. i don't have to go into a office, my wife -- who used to work at mtv -- isn't working there now. and so -- >> host: may we ask who your wife is? >> guest: my wife is alexa robinson, she was a producer at mtv. she wasn't a vijay. >> host: okay. >> guest: and she -- and so we wanted to try and go on some kind of adventure with the kids to take advantage of the fact that we can live anywhere. and i've always loved northern california, and i have a lot of friends out there. because of all the technology projects that i've been involved with and things that i've written about, you know, it was helpful professionally to be out there for a while. so we've been off on
, illinois. bar, kentucky. gill of california. led by mia love, which is exciting. >> greg: get up to date. >> dana: one direction. >> greg: you have a poster on the ceiling in your office. parade for world series -- >> dana: how come you know that? [ laughter ] >> greg: i'm there when you're not around. sergie romo, the san francisco giants closer at the world series parade he wore this shirt. if i had, could read it says, "i just look like i'm ill i'll" or something like that. i just look illegal. the point of this is the gist of all the articles about this how refreshing it was that romo instead of acting silly at a victory parade was lauding for taking a different path, raising questions about an issue. do you think the writers for yahoo! sports over the "l.a. times" would feel the same way if he wore a ryan-romney shirt or worn any conservative message? there are a lot of athletes who are conservatives who can't wear shirts like that. >> i thought the shirt said who pushed the video. >> andrea: or who can't pray. a lot of republicans running against the obama agenda. guess who sales?
in jail for probation. nobody in california sits in jail for probation for a year. they don't have the room. president obama is the only one who has the power to do so. it would one, admit, that okay, they got it wrong. it would also maybe at that point, then the media might pay attention to it. >> greg: bob, could it be now that we are past the election coincidently the administration might do the right thing? >> bob: saying the right thing -- first of all, notion that you said in your monologue that obama was responsible for guy, this guy is responsible for drawing attention to himself. when you talk about art, you call it art? >> greg: it is art. have you seen the stuff the left calls art? >> bob: i couldn't agree with you more. most of the stuff is on the extreme is terrible. but this guy drew attention to himself. parole violation -- >> dana: 300 people have seen the youtube video before hillary clinton said to tyrone woods' father they'd arrest the guy that made the video. when we know they knew at the time the video had nothing to do with it. the right thing is let him go. >
" this morning. these are still the races that are not called. arizona's second district. california's 52nd district. california's seventh district. north carolina's seventh district. called on monday was arizona ninth district. so, that is from "the washington times" this morning. the headline, "to west allen, west." he is refusing to concede the house reelection battle. six days later. that is "the washington times" with an update. front royal, virginia, republican, let me go back to you. go ahead. caller: my thought is that i am a republican, but also an american. america voted for obama. we need to pull together as a country. all of the people in the congress and the senate need to pull together and think about what all of the american people need and what is good for this country. if that means that right now republicans have to been in a little bit, they have to do it and fix this budget so that we can move forward as a country. host: taxing the wealthiest americans, is that enough? caller: now, it is not, but we have to make a move forward, working together, and if we do not stop fig
. on marriage they were decisive to pass proposition 8 in california, 50% voted for proposition 8 in california. we are extremely conservative and we also have to understand that there's a big difference between the old latino community of some 20 or 30 years ago what i call the cesar chavez latino community, the puerto ricans in new york and chicago and those in the southwest since the u.s. basically took half of mexico and the new population which is 40% foreign-born and the rest of the children of immigrants come a very conservative i know when asked about government they may give answers that are not extraordinary that we get caught up in the polls we've seen it in this election cycle and besides pulling them with specific issues if we had a better understanding of what they are coming from you would get an understanding of why they are answering the question, but i believe with the latino community we lost the vote because of immigration. if we would have had a better position on immigration from the get go come from the primary government romney would have been competitive in those battle
wade into this issue, one of the cases they can hear is the appeal of california's prop 8, the ballot metro that bans same-sex marriage. what's at stake? is. >> the first word is if, and so you have to reiterate that we don't know if that decision to take up this case is going to come today or even this term. it could and it might, and there's speculation that it will, but if the supreme court has anything, it's unpredictable, and on the proposition 8 case, there's a specific question. can a state referendum abolish same-sex marriage after the courts have already ruled that it's legal? remember, that statewide vote to ban gay marriage was in response to courts in california legalizing same-sex marriage. assuming the supreme court sticks to this specific issue, it would have big implications for, say, california, but wouldn't necessarily be a sweeping ruling that would impact same-sex marriage all over the country. >> joe, talk a little bit about these cases that are challenging the federal defense of marriage act, known as doma. this is essentially the law that defines marriage betwee
flew, you know, power equipment from california onmilitary aircraft into the area. so we're doing everything we can. this was an unprecedented storm, and obviously it's impacted so many people on the eastern seaboard. and it's going to take a while to recover. so we're going to be there, each and every day. you know, we've made a lot of progress. not enough. i think everyone would attest. until everyone has been reached and gotten assistance, we get all the power on, the work continues. but i think fema has done an outstanding job. the president obviously has been working on this intensively. and our local leaders, governor christie and mayor bloomberg, governor comeau and governor malloy, and all of the local officials are doing everything they can obviously because people are suffering and hurting out there, and we've got to stand by them and make sure we stay on this until the job gets done. >> let me take you back to political handicapping here in the time two days. you've heard our latest numbers as the polling, a one-point edge for president obama in the national head-to-hea
to life. on marriage, latinos were decisive to pass proposition eight in california, 53% of latinos voted for proposition eight in california. we are extremely conservative. i think, and we also have to understand there's some difference between the old latino community of say 20, 30 years ago what i call the cesar chavez a team community, and, the new york, the puerto ricans in new york and chicago, and those in the southwest, been in the u.s. since the was basically took half of mexico. and the new latino population which is foreign-born, 40% foreign-born, and the rest of the children of immigrants. very conservative. i know when asked about government they may give answers that are not extraordinary, but sometimes we get tangled, caught up with polls. resort have seen in this election cycle. and i think with latinos we cite polling with specific issues but is that a better understanding of where they're coming from you will get an understanding of why they're answering the questions that way. but i believe with the latino community, we lost the latino vote because of immigration. if we
all the money that came in. when poll significances raise taxes, whether it's in california, we've seen the devastation there. illinois, we've seen the damage to that economy, maryland. when politicians raise taxes instead of cutting spending, you have lousy economic growth. those states, and you can compare either the reagan recovery, lower taxes, spending restraints, less regulation versus the very weak obama economy, wore where he did all the opposite things of reagan and got everything that an economist would tell you gets bad in an economy. let's compare state by state. california versus texas. illinois versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you put people out of work and you bankrupt your state. >> we have you for the whole two hours so i want to get to a quick piece of president obama's op-ed because we already did governor romney's op-ed, i'll have you comment on it and then we're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, pove
and no state income tax and look at california as a case study they've lost 350,000 people to texas alone in the last 10 years. texas is growing, california is a disaster. a case study in disaster. >> congressman ryan, a hance to jump in. >> i think it's difficult to make a comparison between the oil bust, which is a commodity based product which can get caught up in different complications, versus the auto industry. i think it's a difficult comparison. but the auto restructuring package has worked and it's benefiting hubbard, ohio, and other areas where many people who work at general motors benefit from that. so it as the position on chinese steel that the president has taken that has benefited youngstown and gerard and many other people who work in that area. i take issue with him saying there's a lack of federal resources in texas. nasa has made huge investments in texas. many businesses in texas benefit from investments in the united states military. throughout the entire state of texas, i think if you look at many of the universitys in texas, they get a bode load of money from the r
. >> the chairman of the senate intelligence committee of course, that's dianne feinstein of california, has said today that though david petraeus warks n will not be testifying at the hearings she's called for later in the week, he could be called at a later time. >> mike viquiera, thank you so much. for more on the petraeus resignation, wants to bring in msnbc military analyst, retired u.s. army colonel, jack jacobs. colonel jack, thanks for sticking around. first of all, let's start with where vic left off. what do you make of the timing of all of this? >> i don't see anything untoward about this. i think the fbi investigated as quickly as they could. i think as soon as they found something out, they talked to him. there was a bit of a delay in notifying the president. but that's something else altogether. you were asking about gen ben ghazi, do you want to talk benghazi? >> yeah. >> you've been on the ground. you know, you know what it's like to be on the ground when your intelligence is no good, i think from a military standpoint, i don't think it made any sense whatsoever to send a quick re
in a highly competitive and highly mobile labor pool, alabama and california and texas and vermont have some sense that their kids have a common basis of knowledge. so since they came up with the national governors association, i would hope that we could have more discussion. >> i agree. michael gold is really doing a lot of work in the united kingdom. he got all excited. in the k-12 system, it goes to the heart of it. there is this deep belief that we need to develop acute self-esteem so we can perform. we need to do is tell people we need to do that to have self-esteem. because we get that right, that will be great. they are not easy to achieve, but if i could wave a wand i would make k-12 teachers america's heroes. they would be the profession that we all aspire to, they would be places like japan where they call their teachers sensei and you can feel the difference between we view those in america and those in other countries. we have decided to unionize rather than professionalize. when you do that, but you end up with is creating this in k-12. a lot of people disagree. i think that cho
